Small Biz Spotlight: The West Paw Collection of Pet Accessories Made With Ocean-Bound Plastic

It’s no secret that we LOVE dogs here at Design Milk! We also love products that champion the environment, and our latest discovery brings them both together. The bowls and doggy place mats in West Paw’s new Seaflex® Collection are for the not so dainty eaters in your home, of the four-legged variety. A sleek looking duo, the place mat with raised edges keeps their mess contained while the no-slip bowl eliminates the cacophony of jingles and jangles that can accompany your best friend’s meals. Choose from Marine Blue or Sea Fog Grey to match your decor or your pup’s personality.

The entirety of the dishwasher-safe Seaflex Collection is safe and non-toxic, and the material it’s named after is giving plastic a second life. Seaflex is a blend of reclaimed, recycled ocean-bound plastic and zero-waste Zogoflex® material. It’s thanks to a collaboration with Oceanworks® that West Paw is able to safely and responsibly source the material from threatened coastal areas in Central America and instead make them into things dogs love. You can also rest easy knowing that West Paw’s Seaflex products are BPA, phthalate and latex free. Even though the collection has been tested for toughness using West Paw’s Chew Squad and is backed by their Love it Guarantee™, when the time comes you can recycle both bowl and place mat through Join the Loop®.
